Have a space that desperately needs organizing but all you have the budget for are unattractive plastic drawers? Or perhaps you're about to move into a dorm and are looking for a way to show off your personality? We've come up with a simple and super affordable way to add a little pizzazz to these basic plastic organizers! More after the jump…

If you're like us, you don't mind these plastic storage containers when they get the job done. We do mind, however, when they get messy inside and other people can see them!

Using some painted cardboard taped securely to the inside of the drawers, we were able to make a colorful statement instead of a messy one!

Materials like patterned paper, wallpaper, contact paper or even fabric could be used to add a colorful punch to your inexpensive plastic drawers. We do suggest placing your materials on something sturdy like cardboard to protect your material against aggressive rummaging. And since the plastic supports are wide on these storage drawers, the tape is completely hidden from the outside!

What do you think? Have you tried something similar to this in your own organizing? Have an even better idea? Let us know!
